  1. Hi Folks. Just now getting to trying this feature out. As others pointed out, the LT seems limited regarding the leftmost two (and rightmost 2?) footswitch buttons. Is it true that we cannot assign to these? If so, why should that be? Hardware-wise, is it any different conceptually that the non-LT? Thank you. (P.S. Note that HX Edit does let me assign in the Command Center window...)
  2. Sorry to hear about your trouble, tdawgg :-/ That might be something different from mine. Good luck.
  3. Worked! I should have recorded before and after settings - I wonder which of them made the difference. Something to do with the digital out I bet. Nice work L6.
  4. Hi Folks. I just updated my Helix LT from 2.8 to 2.90, and as I said, playing through my still-new-to-me Powercab 112 Plus doesn't sounds as crisp (nor quite as loud - based on the input signal LED) afterwards. The update apparently reset my global settings (I'm using digital out to the PC+) so I had to go in and set the one that turns off the big volume control for that output. Any ideas what might have happend? Thanks!
  5. Hi Everyone, I'm liking my PC+ after a month of trying it out at home. (No practice or gigs due to COVID-19.) I've noticed that almost all my presets have a too-strong resonance around 120Hz. It's annoying and I wonder if this is how it is with the PC design. Again, I'm in a small-ish room, so maybe it's better on stage. I'm using the parametric eq to subtract between 4 and 8 db depending on the amp/cab. I'm using the PC+ in FRFR mode, modeling everything in my Helix LT. Love to hear your thoughts!

  7. I’m really enjoying my Powercab 112 Plus at home. It’s got a nice punch in flat mode. I have a Helix LT.
  8. Hey Folks, Digging my Powecab 112 Plus (haven't been able to try out side the bedroom - no band practices or gigs), and I'm exploring controlling the master volume via MIDI. I believe this is an undocumented feature, but I found mention elsewhere and I'm wondering if anyone is doing this. Here's the post ( https://line6.com/support/topic/36395-powercab-plus-midi-control-with-helix-midi/?tab=comments#comment-313560 ): I have no MIDI experience, but I'm hoping it's straightforward to tell the expression pedal to send a volume parameter message of some kind to control between a range. But if that's a global range (say 0 is no sound and 100% is full volume), then it would be a hassle having to adjust each preset according to the venue... (Obviously I haven't thought this out very far.) Just curious your thoughts. Thanks!
  9. Much obliged, @amsdenj. That's what I was thinking. I guess I set the PC+ input with the Helix at -3dB so that the PC+ LED is green with a little yellow flashing, and then trust that the increase to 0dB will not be red? Or is it vice versa (set PC+ input level for 0dB)? I'm also going to post a question about using MIDI to control the PC+ master, as another possible option...
  10. OK, a question on this. First, by "normal output" do you mean the preset's output block? (That's the one I used to use to control my master volume, via my expression pedal from 0 to +7dB. Basically I prefer a control range rather than a single boost footswitch.) Second, if I set my input to the PC+ at -3dB so that the signal LED is green with a little yellow, then won't the 0dB push it into the red? I guess there's a balance there... Thanks!
  11. (Apologies for writing a general forums question on the Helix forum, but I like the friendly Helix community :-) I'd like to create a poll but I couldn't find the feature anywhere. I found one example here, but I'm guessing it's a moderator-level restriction? Thanks!
  12. Thanks very much for your comment! Question: I'm not sure what you mean by "provide block unity gain" - would you please explain a bit more? Also, I'll often find a model that is significantly louder or quieter than others. The Fenders are the latter, IIRC. How do you adapt those? Do you up the output block's gain? Thanks again.
  13. Hi Folks. Been a Helix LT user for a number of years, never totally happy when using it with a QSC K10, so I got a PC 112 plus last week. I'm exploring it, but one question I have is how does one control the overall stage volume? I usually run my K10 gain at 100% and then use the LT volume knob to control overall volume - practice vs. stage. But I read elsewhere that I should basically reverse my approach by putting the Helix volume at 100% and using the PC+ knob to adjust overall volume. However, I know that adjusting the input gain feeding into the PC is important (yellow lights up sometimes, preferably not much red at all). My question is how does one add a boost (or an overall adjustment) from the Helix side? In the past I've had the expression pedal control each preset's output block gain b/w 0 db and 7 dB, which worked great as a general volume adjustment tool. But that means I go into the red during solos (say). I hope that's not too confused. Looking forward to your advice!
  14. Question: I've been using a QSC K10 for a few years with my LT, but I just got a PC+. I usually run my K10 gain at 100% and then use the LT volume knob to control overall volume - practice vs. stage. But you're saying I should basically reverse my approach by putting the Helix volume at 100% and using the PC+ knob to adjust overall volume, correct? Also, would you please point me to that recommendation? I didn't find it in the PC+ manual. Thx!
